Letters – Travis Lanham

The Guardians have survived the destruction of their ship, or more to the point Yondu, Charlie-27 and Geena have seemed to. As for the rest of the team, that remains to be seen. The three of them run into A-Sentience, one of Tony Stark’s drones whom they manage to sway to their side and when the rest of the horde shows up they find themselves in a tight spot only to be rescued by the one and only Star-Lord. Dan Abnett continues the fun with the future Guardians of the Galaxy and brings in Star-Lord to liven things up just a bit more if that could even be possible. What is most interesting about that part is the fact that it still seems like it could be Peter Quill under the helmet. What is really great about seeing him a thousand years in the future is that he still has his element gun and Ship finally makes an appearance after being out of comics for quite some time, a part of the character that should never have gone away. There is a part in the book that introduces the future Nova Corps, the entire one person that comprises it. That is a huge mystery that hopefully, Dan Abnett will explore as it is hard to see the Corps has fallen on such hard times though obviously, something at some time happened to make this a reality. Another mystery that has yet to be explored for which the seeds have been planted is how Tony Stark might possibly still be alive. It is hard to imagine that there is this huge force of Stark robots out in space, as well as the being called A-Sentience talking as if he were still living, if the man is still not around in this present time though one can only wonder. At the moment, it is only the third issue of the book and yet it is jam-packed with characters new and old with enough material to explore for at least two more arcs once this one runs its course. Factor in some great artwork from Gerardo Sandoval and Edgar Delgado and this book has everything that one could want. Well worth a read.
